A couple of weeks ago, on the All Songs Considered blog, we asked listeners to tell us about their favorite bands, especially lesser-known groups. The response was overwhelming. We got hundreds of band and artist names and the vast majority of them were ones we'd never even heard of. On this edition of All Songs Considered we play some of the standouts, including music from the London-based rock group Fanfarlo, lo-fi singer-songwriter The Blow, the Australian dream pop group Augie March and more.
